ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) acrylic filters the highest level of damaging UV light (200-400 nanometers) and offers excellent light transmission in the visible range between 400 and 700 nanometers.
The proprietary technology of ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) eliminates the objectionable “yellow tint” evident in other UV filtering products. It can be easily fabricated, thermoformed, cold-formed, screen printed, and painted. ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) is guaranteed against defects or your money back.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering mar-resistant (OP2 MR) acrylic sheet combines abrasion and chemical resistance with these same UV filtering properties to minimize marring caused by public contact and frequent cleaning.
Acrylite Cast Acrylic Sheets’ Applications and Benefits
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) is produced using our propriety formulation. This material is superior to other glazing materials for maintaining its clarity, even after years of exposure to sunlight and weather.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) has been exposed to EMMA-QUA and XENON accelerated weathering for an equivalent time period of 15 years with no appreciable loss of its UV filtering capabilities.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) acrylic sheet provides superior protection as compared to conservation glass. It protects cherished art, photographs, and memorabilia against fading and yellowing caused by UV light.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering mar-resistant sheet (OP2 MR) offers the same level of UV protection and also resists scratching and the dulling effects of alcohol and ammonia cleaners. Known for its outstanding optical quality and clarity, ACRYLITE® is half the weight of glass and many times more shatter-resistant making it the perfect choice for treasured art and artifacts.
The high impact strength of ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) acrylic guards your exhibits against direct physical intrusion. All this protection comes affordably priced, so you can protect your treasures without damaging your budget.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) can be cut, drilled, routed thermoformed, cold-formed, screen printed, and painted. Edges can be mitered and cemented for strong nearly invisible joints requiring no framing. The crystal clarity of ACRYLITE® UV filtering keeps the viewers’ attention on the exhibited object, not the protective enclosure.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) can also be used to replace or overglaze existing window or skylight glazings. In this way, destructive ultraviolet radiation from sunlight is virtually eliminated from any room. And, because of the high visible light transmission, there are no significant losses of
natural lighting or visual clarity.
ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) has a pleasing blue-green tinted edge, similar to high-quality glass, so even the visual aesthetics of ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP2) acrylic surpass the others.
